After a week of rain, here’s a ride to look forward to! Join us on PAA’s Two Dams route to check out all the water coming down Big Tujunga Creek and filling the basin behind Hansen Dam. We will have a chance to see flood control in action before our eyes!

 

Starting at Descanso Garden, we will head to the Big Tujunga Dam Overlook via La Crescenta Highlands and Lower Big Tujunga Canyon Rd. Those who want extra credit can continue to climb 1.5 miles farther to the intersection with the Angeles Forest Hwy. The rest of us will take in the view at the Overlook and descend back to Sunland, where we will stop at the Back Door Bakery & Cafe before we continue the ride. Long a club favorite, Back Door Bakery features great pastries as well as heartier fare if you skipped breakfast. After the break, we will ride west to Hansen Dam before heading back to the starting point, skirting Foothill Blvd as we go. 

 

Start Time: 8:00 AM at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada-Flintridge.
